I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Pick Your Thon Mini Challenge #2

Cast Your Character
Mini Challenge #2

I like to watch movies but I don't usually remember who anyone is. :(

I went to google and while my main character is in her 20's, I searched for actresses in their 30's. Yahoo had a wonderful article about sexy actresses in their 30's so I checked out images and came up with ..... Penelope Cruz

She's a little older than my main character and her coloring is different but she has the strong, sexy, independent vibe going for her. Plus, I've seen her as a blond and it works.

My main character lost her mother when she was little. Grew up on a cattle ranch in Wyoming with her older brother and father. Her idolizes her older brother and they were friends. She even followed him to university. He died two years ago in a car accident.

Her father died last year in a freak ranch accident when his ATV rolled on top of him while looking for stranded cattle. He froze to death.

Cheyenne has grown up in the rough, male dominated, world of cattle ranching. Even the cook is male (and a good friend). She's had to continue running things after her fathers death and now there are unexplained fires. First her house, then a neighbors barn, her bunkhouse then she's kidnapped and the cabin she's held in catches fire.

Sure she had help but she had to be confident enough to be boss, make the hard decisions of life and death. I can totally see her in this role.
That was fun! Thanks Heather.

Dang, forgot to tell you which book!

Quinn by R. C. Ryan

The Truth Can Be an Irresistible Temptation . . .

As a young boy, Quinn Conway was shattered by his mother's mysterious disappearance. Today, as the oldest of the Conway brothers, his only concern is protecting his family and their ranch. One look at beautiful, strong-willed Cheyenne O'Brien tells him she's also no stranger to tragedy. A series of increasingly dangerous "accidents" are plaguing her and her land, and Quinn can't stand idly by while a woman is in danger. Fiercely independent, Cheyenne isn't one to lean on others, yet she can't deny her attraction to the rugged rancher offering help. Soon, the passion building between them proves as wild and untamed as the land she loves-and just as impossible to resist. But a relentless enemy is about to make one final devastating move. To survive, Quinn and Cheyenne must put their cherished freedom-and their hearts-at risk . . .
